1.3 Matrices and Their Algebra 1 Chapter 1. Vectors, Matrices, and Linear Spaces 1.3. Matrices and Their Algebra Defnition. A matrix is a rectangluar array of numbers. An m × n matrix is a matrix with m rows and n columns : A =[ a ij ]= a 11 a 12 ··· a 1 n a 21 a 22 ··· a 2 n . . . . . . . . . . . . a m 1 a m 2 ··· a mn . Defnition 1.8. Let A =[ a ik ]bean m × n matrix and let B =[ b kj ]be an n × s matrix. The matrix product AB is the m × s matrix C =[ c ij ] where c ij is the dot product of the i th row vector of A and the j th column vector of B : c ij = n k =1 a ik b kj .
